Board Members

Structure of the Association

The North Fork Ambulance is an IRS 501(c)(3) Private Non-Profit Corporation. Prior to 2014, the Association was a 501(c)(4) Non-Profit Social Welfare Organization. In 2014, the Board applied for and was granted a 501(c)(3) Status by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) which grants our members the ability to be able to claim donations as tax deductions. Our 501(c)(3) status also allows the Association to qualify for more grants which assist in purchasing critical life-saving equipment for the Association.

The Association is governed by a Board of Directors who meet monthly to direct the major decisions of the Association and keep it sustainable. Day to day operations are managed by our Executive Director, Business Office Manager, Operations Chief and Station Captains.


Board members are elected at the Association's annual meeting which is held in February of each year. Board members are elected to two-year terms and terms are staggered to maintain continuitiy of the board. As of 2015, all board members are from the community with various backgrounds and skills which they bring to the Association to help guide its future. If you are interested in getting on the Board of Directors, please contact Board President, Dan Miller.

Below is the current slate of board members for 2015-2016. If you have questions, comments or concerns about the Association, please do not hesitate to contact them. You can find information about our Executive Director Kathy Steckel, by clicking here.
